Cascina Delle Rose Barbera Superiore Donna Elena 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A little stewy on the nose, complex and earthy and obviously terroir driven. Air brings out blue flowers and ripe blue and plum fruits with chocolate shavings on the nose. This is elegant, clear, and dry rich and ripe in the mouth, not an easy feat to manage. The fruit is quite perfumed in the mouth with hints of chocolate, violets, and stemmy spice adding detail There is impressive clarity of fruit here that shows excellent persistence on the chocolate covered cherry tinged finish. I can’t say this is my favorite style of barbera, this is a bit big but you can’t deny that it is expertly made in this style and judging it within the lineup today one can’t help but realise that this is simply what the vines produced in 2009. 91pts
